I’ve mentioned my involvement in Grunt-Contrib a few times lately. It’s the number one thing I spend my free time on. This month we decided to overhaul how contrib tasks are organized; branching them off into their own repos/packages. This brings flexibility and control that a single repo/package model made nearly impossible.
This overhaul is aided by a new Grunt feature, collections, which allows us to maintain the out-of-the-box usability for the “grunt-contrib” package while allowing more advanced tasks to be opt-in with a little more setup. With the number of available grunt tasks growing daily, I believe that collections will take off and that themed collections will become commonplace.
These (and many more) changes have made September a very busy month for all the contributors involved. Be sure to checkout all our hard work under the GruntJS Organization.
PS: Grunt also has a new site that makes finding Grunt plugins easier than ever.
